The lockout is a major bummer for a lot of people. Especially employees of NBA teams that don’t have millions of dollars to fall back on but get laid off. So it’s not really all that funny.
Yet, there’s still good reason not to take it all too seriously. That’s what Blake Grififn and Kevin Love did in their fake advertisement for “Lockout Professionals.” Need a fly swatted high on the wall? Want Ron Artest to do your taxes? Want love advice from Tyson Chandler? You can get it all for the low price of like $9 million. Not bad. Pretty good way for these guys to make some coin while they’re locked out.
Sure beats playing in Europe, I’d say.
